DIPPING INTO ADVENT: REFLECTIONS FOR ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS

Alan Hilliard

Original and compelling reflections for Advent

This is a refreshing contrast to most books of daily reflections for Advent or Lent. The author, a Catholic priest, has compiled a series of narratives; many are anecdotes from his wide pastoral experience. They serve as stories or homilies that open out our horizons and make us think more deeply about what really matters in our lives - our relationships with one another, and with God. Each narrative concludes with a succinct quotation that drives the message home. Many Bible allusions and quotations are included, although these are not always central to the point of the story. A series of purple-tinted illustrations adds to the atmosphere as we contemplate the problems, the ironies and the paradoxes of our complex world. Told with humour and compassion, these stories provide an alternative and thought-provoking guide to the Advent season. I recommend this original book.
